tional on financial reform of the african union african you know wants to see itself moral past and independently find out why it's on them it was a scheme in which it wants its member states to live a zero point two percent on imports and that money will be used to finance the programs operations and activities of the organization one president. of the leadership of the african union general assembly the highest position making organ and their high hopes aziz the man who blasted a you reform plan it must act now to save africa from permanent provision scare is essential. we must created a single continental market. into bridge our infrastructure and
infuse our economies with chicken knowledge. the theme of this year's summit is how to tackle corruption in africa it's a huge problem according to the african union fifty billion dollars are lost by the african continent every year through corrupt depths now president obama group of nigeria a man who many praise for his and to corruption crusade in nigeria one of the most corrupt african countries has been appointed the champion of the african union and to corruption campaign for the year two thousand and eighteen the current event has made significant strides hootin in police legal and safe room without. new to really their. own free venting and converting corruption. however there are different of the legal and frameworks.

in fact about twenty seven million people globally have these things including people in the u.s. military well it's starting to become a concern now for the u.s. military because this global heat map that went online last fall lets anybody go onto the internet and see where people that have these tracking devices are located and if you look at this map you see it places like the united states in north america and in europe are lit up because a lot of people in those areas of course have them but also now you can see areas where potentially u.s. military personnel have them the pentagon a few years ago gave out about twenty five hundred of these devices to some personnel in an effort to fight obesity so now there is concern that people can go onto this map and they can zoom in and they can see places where a military personnel are active places like the c. hill region of africa and an area south of mosul in iraq now the pentagon is taking
a look at this it issued a statement late this evening saying that the d.o.d. is taking this very seriously it's reviewing the situation to see if training and policy should be developed in order to keep personnel safe so this device that was given out to the military in an effort to keep them fit now could potentially be a security risk now for the president has declared victory in the country's general elections nice to have secured another six year term winning more than sixty percent of the vote has been volatile to just twelve percent the president is credited with balancing a delicate relationship with a nation without antagonizing the neighborhood russia. no one has formally to collars purge the mantles expected to ask a spanish judge for permission to attend a regional parliamentary session on tuesday where spain's constitutional court for all that he must be present to be chosen as the region's president allowing him to

which. it is therefore important that all losers play their parts you do they want to have consumption the agricultural sector has made a commitment to make sure that. you know they do have solutions as advised by some of our institutions of higher learning c s i as well as they would tell me what are the search commission so that do then that is that the patient to the realities of climate change. now relations between the u.s. and cuba have to tear wait at sunstone trump took office has put limits on trade and made it harder for americans to visit the island bought some musicians and time to show that the two countries can get along. reports from havana. sharing a stage comes naturally to these cuban and us musicians he was best known pianist. playing alongside american jazz legend. the saxophone player is among the u.s.
artists who headline this years have been a jazz festival. musicians turned cultural ambassadors at a time of renewed hostilities between their governments it's now more important than ever music is a common language connects these two countries again the politics or the politics but the art form is a common language and that will help strengthen perhaps some of the other areas of the broader international relationship and that relationship has deteriorated significantly since its high point two years ago today the state department is actively advising americans to stay away from cuba but not all of them are listening even under tighter travel restrictions reimposed by the trumpet ministration and then president of number of americans visited and performed at this year's just festival here in havana and when asked why they're here they generally gave the same basic answer music from the strongest part i'm concerned.
this cuban pianist couldn't agree more playing for a tour of american jazz lovers had respect things musical overtures can have just as much power as diplomatic ones. cuban music and culture is an explosion it's fire and that is what we transmit to the audiences beyond all the problems that exist i try to express what i am. as a musician but as a culture. and the cultural efforts extend beyond music this statue of cuban independence year ago was a gift from new york's bronx of the arts to the people of cuba veiling attended by architects and other artists from both countries hopes to have the start of other joint projects it's always been the artists and their cultural organization that have really kept the conversation going they were responsible for initiating the
conversation. in the doors for relationship building greater connections between cuba and the. role castro attended the inaugural ceremony in what is expected to be one of his last public events as cuban president perhaps a not of support to those trying to get the relationship with the u.s. back on track. al-jazeera. now in the mounting forty's and fifty's america's first female police captain change the face of forensic science. a detailed miniature crime scenes to train murder and best of his is. credited with helping convict the guilty innocent and find the truth and son of a smithsonian american art museum explains how lee's work is still used today. frances cluster lee was born in eight hundred seventy eight and she was the heiress to the international harvester fortune and she spent her whole life with an
interest in medical studies and police investigation and eventually when she was sixty five years of age she began a series of dire amma's called the nut shell studies of unexplained death so named because there was an old police saying to convict the guilty clear the innocent and find the truth in a nutshell she got involved with her local police department she became the first female police captain in the united states and then she began the series of dire amas the sort of curious collection of doll houses with murders in them more or other kinds of mysterious death to help train forensic investigators how to approach a crime scene the nutshell studies are a series of twenty dire amasa one inch to one foot scale france can construct of the dire amas with the help of her carpenter ralph moshe so he would construct a room this little small room and he would create all the furniture she was
obsessive about the detail that she put in these pieces so the dolls are closed all the way down to underwear little tiny cigarettes are rolled with nicotine inside them and stamped out for for authenticity she insisted that even the rocking chair stair carpenter made rock to the same number of times as the original . highly detailed work because she realized that these were being used for training purposes and for anyone to take them seriously they had to be highly accurate she was the godmother of police science even though her name is not well known she's sort of a cult figure among police officers so these forensic dollhouses are actually still used today at the medical examiner's office in baltimore to teach forensic investigators she's taught the first seminar in one nine hundred forty five and they're still used in two thousand and eighteen it's pretty amazing.
